Professional Wine Reviews for Paul Cluver Pinot Noir Seven Flags 2013

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Seven Flags Pinot Noir is the seventh vintage and comes from the oldest vines from 113 Dijon clone, from the top left hand corner of the 4.5-hectare vineyard, and this represents a barrel selection. It has a refined, laid back bouquet with a pleasing earthiness, the 50% whole bunch lending freshness here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, more red than black fruit with raspberry preserve and cranberry leaf, a touch of bergamot towards the finish. Perhaps not as long term as other vintages, but still just a delicious Pinot Noir whose easy-drinking qualities are a virtue.

Additional Information on Paul Cluver Pinot Noir Seven Flags 2013

Winery: Paul Cluver

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
